An Anne Arundel County woman was killed and four passengers injured yesterday afternoon when their minivan was hit by a car on Charles Street in Towson and overturned, Baltimore County police said.

The driver of the minivan, 43-year-old Deborah Lewis of the 8300 block of Pioneer Drive in Severn, died after being partially ejected from the vehicle in front of the Greater Baltimore Medical Center.

Police said the crash occurred when a Nissan traveling south on Charles Street failed to yield while making a left turn into GBMC and clipped the Plymouth Voyager, which was northbound on Charles Street by Lewis.

Lewis lost control of the vehicle, and it drove over the median strip and sideswiped a second minivan before turning over, according to county police.

A 19-year-old woman in the minivan driven by Lewis -- Donita Harris, of the same Pioneer Drive address as Lewis -- was flown to Maryland Shock Trauma Center, where she was listed in stable condition last night.

Three other passengers in the Lewis vehicle -- ages 17, 12, and 4 -- were taken to St. Joseph Medical Center in Towson, where they were treated and released.

The driver of the Nissan was uninjured, according to police. The driver of the minivan struck by Lewis was treated for minor injuries at St. Joseph.

Police said none of the passengers in Lewis' vehicle were wearing seat belts.
